WHAT MAKES THE BOOK DIFFERENT: The fact that it actually and completely explains how computers work while simultaneously requiring no knowledge of computers or electronics. There are books that require no electrical engineering background and purport to explain how computers work. Unfortunately, they dont explain how computers work. Computers are quite complex. There are books that explain how computers work, but they require a background in electrical engineering.
